Did you catch Le Patin Libre’s recent performances at Somerset House, or Dan Canham’s rooftop performances of Of Riders and Running Horses or Katherine Morley’s gem for tiny babies 16 Singers?

All of these shows and more were made possible by Dance Umbrella’s Commission Fund, which we use to create new shows with artists. 

Come and help us continue this work by joining our fundraising event LEAP where all funds raised will go to the Commission Fund. 

Simon Callow will be our Master of Ceremonies for the evening which will feature performances by: 

  • Jonzi D (DU patron) & Jonathan Burrows (DU collaborator and commissionee) in a one-off performance Jonzithan
  • Eleanor Sikorski ("a gymnast gone rogue") 
  • Ivan Blackstock (DU Commission 2014) 
  • a choir of Katherine Morley's singers 
  • BBC Young Dancer of Year winner Connor Scott 
  • a trampoline
  • an exploding cake and a sneak preview of the 2016 festival

There will also be a Lucky Dip, Silent Auction, a Raffle with truly unique prizes & a surprise performance or two...

A Golden Ticket is up for grabs for this year's festival to anyone who proposes to their partner on the night!

Tickets cost £75 and include a welcome drink and snacks.
